What’s on my palette

IMG_2122Combinations of Indanthrene Blue, Alizarin Permanent, Indian Yellow, Courbet Green, and probably Raw Umber, tinting with Titanium White. The mixes seem to be going in a wintry direction. I’ve been applying these same colors with different ratio mixes and concentrations of saturation as I expand the Out Loud series.

Flower pods pounded from metal, shadows cast on a walkway, tree trunks and nests made of glass, watercolors larger than life, exuberant colorful oil paintings.

I encourage everyone to visit this exquisite show at the Harrington Gallery in Pleasanton, CA, thoughtfully curated by Julie Finegan of the Firehouse Arts Center. The exhibit showcases the work of seven artists, who use a range of materials to express their experiences of nature. Beautifully installed, the energy of these works flows from room to room, offering an oasis of harmony in a turbulent world.
